All investments made pursuant to this Banking investment policy were established and shall comply with the following conditions.

COLLATERAL

�� Certificates of deposit shall be fully secured by insurance of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or by obligations of New York State or obligations of the United States or obligations of federal agencies the principal and interest of which are guaranteed by the United States, or obligations of New York State local governments. Collateral shall be delivered to the Local Government or a Custodial Bank with which the Local Government has entered into a Custodial Agreement. The market value of collateral shall at all times equal or exceed the principal amount of the certificate of deposit. Collateral shall be monitored no less frequently than weekly, and market value shall mean the bid or closing price as quoted in the Wall Street Journal or as quoted by another recognized pricing service.

 

�� Securities purchased through a repurchase agreement shall be valued to market at least weekly.

 

�� Collateral shall now be required with respect to the direct purchase of obligations of New York State, obligations of the United States, and obligations of federal agencies the principal and interest of which are guaranteed by the United States Government.

DELIVERY OF SECURITIES

�� Repurchase Agreements. Every Repurchase Agreement shall provide for payment to the seller only upon the seller's delivery of obligations of the United States to the Custodial Bank designated by the Local Government, or in the case of a book-entry transaction, when the obligations of the United States are credited to the Custodian's Federal Reserve Bank account. The seller shall not be entitled to substitute securities. Repurchase agreements shall be for periods of 30 days or less. The Custodial Bank shall confirm all transactions in writing to insure that the Local Government's ownership of the securities is properly reflected on the records of the Custodial Bank.

 

�� Payment shall be made by or on behalf of the Local Government for obligations of New York State, obligations the principal and interest of which are guaranteed by the United States, United States Obligations, Certificates of Deposit, and other purchased securities upon the delivery thereof to the custodial bank, or in the case of a book-entry transaction, when the purchased securities are credited to the Custodial Bank's Federal Reserve System account. All transactions shall be confirmed in writing.

WRITTEN CONTRACTS

�� Written contracts are required for Repurchase Agreements, certificates of deposit, and custodial undertaking. With respect to the purchase of obligations of United States, New York State, or other governmental entities, etc. in which monies may be invested, the interests of the Local Government will be adequately protected by conditioning payment on the physical delivery of purchased securities to the Local Government or Custodian, or in the case of the book-entry transactions, on the crediting of purchased securities to the Custodian's Federal Reserve System account. All purchases will be confirmed in writing to the Local Government.

 

�� It is therefore, the policy of the Local Government, to require written contracts as follows:

  1. Written contracts shall be required for all Repurchase Agreements. Only credit worthy banks and primary reporting dealers shall be qualified to enter into a Repurchase Agreement with the Local Government. The written contract shall provide that only obligations of the United States may be purchased, and the Local Government shall make payment upon delivery of the securities or appropriate book-entry of the purchased securities. No specific repurchase agreement shall be entered into unless a master repurchase agreement has been executed between the Local Government and the trading partners.

While the term of the master repurchase agreement may be for a reasonable length of time, a specific repurchase agreement shall not exceed thirty (30) days.

Written contracts shall be required for the purchase of all certificates of deposit.

  1. A written contract shall be required with the Custodial Bank.

DESIGNATION OF CUSTODIAL BANK

�� Custodial Bank. HSBC Bank USA, chartered by the State of New York is designated to act as Custodial Bank of the Local Government's investments. However, securities may not be purchased through a Repurchase Agreement with the Custodial Bank.

FINANCIAL STRENGTH OF INSTITUTIONS

�� All trading partners must be credit worthy. Their financial statements must be reviewed at least annually by Chief Fiscal Officer to determine satisfactory financial strength or the Chief Fiscal Officer may use credit rating agencies to determine credit worthiness of trading partners. Concentration of investments in financial institutions should be avoided.

 

�� Investments in time deposits and certificates of deposit are to be made with banks or trust companies. Their annual reports must be reviewed by the Chief Fiscal Officer to determine satisfactory financial strength.

 

�� When purchasing eligible securities, the seller shall be required to deliver the securities to our Custodial Bank.

 

�� Repurchase Agreements shall be entered into only with banks or trust companies or registered and primary reporting dealers in government securities. Sound credit judgments must be made with respect to trading partners in repurchase agreements. It is not assumed that inclusion on a list of the Federal Reserve is automatically adequate evidence of credit worthiness.

 

�� Repurchase Agreements should not be entered into with undercapitalized trading firms.

 

�� A margin of 5% or higher of the market value of purchased securities in repurchase agreements must be maintained.

OPERATIONS, AUDIT, AND REPORTING
